Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Intermittently powerful, though not really engaging, this new Figgis version suffers from poor conception of Strindberg's noted play and mediocre acting by Saffron Burrows in the lead; as the servant, Peter Mulan is quite good."
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"An intense screen adaptation of August Strindberg's drama about two people caught up in power plays."

‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"Other than that split screen scene, no convincing argument is made to translate the story from the stage to film."
